How do I find the right college for me?

A visit to a college campus can help you decide if that college is right for you. Make a plan ahead of time to get the most from your visit.

Why should I attend a college fair?

Attend college fairs for a chance to meet with colleges admissions representatives, ask specific questions regarding each school, and participate in possible on-site admissions.
